Out in the Field - Kate McMurray Overall, I thought it was an enjoyable romance and an easy, quick read. There was very little angst in the relationship itself. The bulk of the story was focused on whether they would ever be able to be openly gay since they were both professional baseball players. I really liked both of the characters, but thought that they were both a bit boring. They were also a bit interchangeable with personalities and actions/thoughts that were just too similar.
